Hufflepuff Banner

Sorting (or, nerdy HP fandom stuff that you may want to skip if you don't nerd this way)

Okay, so my sorting post. I've been thinking a lot about sorting and sorting comms and their dynamics vs. canon sorting, stuff like that. But mostly I've been thinking about my own sorting, and how I've changed as a person since I was sorted into Hufflepuff at H_E.

For comparison's sake, here are the two applications:

Hogwarts Elite, Sorted: Hufflepuff, stamped 02-14-05
Hogwarts is Home, Sorted: Slytherin, stamped 06-08-09

Dang, it has been MORE than four years since I was sorted at H_E. CRAZY. That community has changed my life, I'll tell you that right now, friends.

Anyway, if you look at the two applications, you can tell that I am almost a completely different person between then and now. And while I still identify with Hufflepuff, I can see where the different sorts were coming from. What I was not expecting when I submitted my application, however, was how evenly spread my votes among the different houses were. See for yourself; the number of votes I got for each house:

Gryffindor: 25
Hufflepuff: 22
Ravenclaw: 23
Slytherin: 28
